Agriculture Appropriations Bill Passes the House

The House of Representatives narrowly passed the Agriculture Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2012 by a 217-203 vote. A number of amendments that would have cut funding for nutrition related programs were turned down with bipartisan support.

The Women, Infants and Children nutrition program was cut by $600 million, but was saved from any further reductions. The House also rejected amendments that would have cut the Food for Peace program and the Dole-McGovern International Food for Education and Child Nutrition program. Language to prohibit the implementation of the new school meal nutrition guidelines was also removed from the final bill.

ADA worked with key stakeholders to see that a fair bill was passed that minimizes impact on proven nutrition services. In particular, ADA recognizes the support of House members, including Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), Jim McGovern (D.-Mass.), Betty McCollum (D.-Minn.), Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Texas), Gwen Moore (D.-Wis.) and Ron Kind (D.-Wis.). The legislation preserved subsidy payments to farmers, which would have decreased the maximum adjusted income level to $250,000. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, farmers with more than $500,000 in adjusted gross income from off-farm sources are not eligible for subsidy payments.
